1 beekeeper driving ( a svelt beekeeer@175)= 175
why joel you must not know any really svelt beekeeper like george ferguson or myself??? 175 pounds... don't think I will ever see that kind of gross vehicle weight.
then joel adds:
I beleive My 7.3 diesel could pull the 20,000lbs mentioned but we put the hives on the trailer and haul equipment in the truck
tecumseh apoligizes for the confusion:
me very bad.... the 10 ton figure for my truck was for truck and trailer (I guess I should have tagged this gross towing weight). adding a net load of 5 tons to a one ton truck would, I do believe, squat the beast plum down on the ground. I did casually see this trick done on one occasion when a fellow loaded a very small dozer on the back of a stretched one ton flat bed. the fellow never made it to the bottom of the hill. so the liability in this case joel simply translated into the driver dying... the 'rig' could carry that kind of weight, but it would not stop...
